Rogers native M. Scott Hall was raised by a single mother who instilled in him the importance of education.
“It’s something no one can take away from you,” Hall was told by his mother, then a legal secretary for the Benton County Prosecutor’s Office. Hall is now an attorney, practicing business litigation. He earned a business economics degree in 2006 from the University of Arkansas and a law degree from the UA School of Law.
He is a shareholder with Hall Estill and practices out of the firm’s Fayetteville office.
Hall said he relishes the entire spectrum of business law, from helping small businesses establish the proper infrastructure, dealing with local and state governments and economic development, to representing established companies as they face contract disputes.
Hall is the guy in the office wearing crazy socks, always supportive and helpful, with a fun disposition. “Keep it light,” is a motto.
He is a current member of Leadership Fayetteville’s Class 30 and carves out time to take cases for Legal Aid of Arkansas (adoptions are his favorites). This year he was one of Legal Aid’s Outstanding Volunteer Attorneys for the Fourth Judicial District.
An avid animal welfare advocate, Hall served four years as a board member for the Humane Society of the Ozarks Inc., and adopted a pup with diabetes that requires insulin twice daily.
He was a board member for AR Hope Inc., a nonprofit providing HIV testing and education. By indulging his insatiable desire for learning, Hall believes he builds his value for both clients and the community at large.
“I want to help keep Northwest Arkansas growing and becoming a unique and amazing place,” he said.
